FENCE SCAMS SPECIAL FINANCING  #2

FENCE SCAMS … SPECIAL IN-HOUSE FINANCING!

RED-FLAG-WARNING-SMALL

This was a HUGE SCAM used by home improvement siding salesmen back in the day, and we see the older scams making a comeback. In this scam, the customer, usually older retired couple, are contacted about a home improvement product…fencing, windows, roofing, siding, guttering.  After several hours of high pressure sales tactics and the offer of in house financing with low monthly payments, these slime balls coerce the homeowner to what seems like a good deal. When in reality the product is usually 3 to 4 times the normal price and the financing package puts a hefty lien on the home. If the customer complains about the shoddy work or materials, and refuses to pay, they simply force the sale of the house to satisfy the lien covering the exorbitant price of the project.
